A series of novel boron-based polymers was evaluated as binders in heat and oxidation resistant reinforced plastic structures. The preponderance of data concerns resinasbestos composites which were found to exhibit a remarkable retention of their physical properties after heat-aging for 1000 hours in air. Despite current limitations such as resin insolubility, relatively severe processing conditions and hydrolytic instability of the fabricated parts, application of these systems can be foreseen for service as structural components when extended use in air between 700 and 900F is required.
